According to Livesteez, this young man, Billey Joe Johnson, allegedly committed suicide while being pulled over for a routine stop:
Less than one week after the tragic death of George County, Mississippi football star, Billey Joe Johnson, the family has hired Jerome Carter of The Cochran Firm in Mobile, Alabama to represent them. Billey Joe Johnson, 17, died early Monday morning, Dec. 8, after what authorities say was a routine traffic stop. A George County sheriff’s deputy pulled Johnson over after he reportedly ran a stop sign and a red light. While checking the license information, the deputy said he heard a gunshot and then saw Johnson on the ground by the driver’s door of the vehicle the youth had been driving. The shotgun was found lying on Johnson’s chest. Billey Joe was known as one of the state’s most gifted athletes. He had received scholarship offers from many universities, including Alabama, Auburn, Arkansas, LSU, Mississippi, Mississippi State, and Oregon. “There has been so much speculation in the community surrounding the circumstances of the death of one of the most respected high school athletic stars in the area,” says Jerome Carter, with The Cochran Firm Mobile. The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation has been called because a deputy was present at the scene of the incident. They are looking into the possibility that Johnson may have died from a self-inflicted, gunshot wound.
“The family cannot understand why their son would take his own life with such a bright future ahead of him,” continued Carter. “They are looking for answers.”
This story f*cking stinks just like a classic deep south cover up. Everyone knows how shady One-Time can be, so what do Bossipers think???
